Virat Kohli's Net-Worth And Revenue Will Drop Your Jaws
ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 our performances, with team India leading the scoreboard. From KL Rahul’s 97-not
out to Bumrah becoming the joint-highest wicket-taker, this World Cup is
witnessing India aiming to repeat its 2011 performance, having not lost even a
single match, and every other team picking up at least one win on an average.
The contenders to the top of the leaderboard, New Zealand and South Africa, are
on their terrific run while previous champions, England, are facing issues
moving forward on the leaderboard.
Virat Kohli, the feared and respected Indian right-handed batsman has
been a key highlight in the season’s innings so far. He is inching closer and
closer to breaking the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar’s fine record of 49 ODI
Hundreds. There were opportunities for Virat Kohli to surpass during this World
Cup, but he fell short by a measly few runs against Australia and New Zealand.
However, there’s a likely chance Virat Kohli would be able to shatter the
Master Blaster’s seemingly impossible record in this WC.
Another milestone Kohli can achieve would be scoring
the most 50s for a batsman in ODIs while chasing the target. He and Sachin
Tendulkar are currently on level terms, with Tendulkar having scored 17
centuries and 52 half-centuries. In comparison, Kohli has 27 centuries and 40
half-centuries – both accounting for a total of 69 50+scores each. This WC
could be the barrier-breaker for Virat Kohli, as he can create and achieve
whole new world records.
Apart from cricket, Virat Kohli is also winning the social media game,
with over 260 million followers on Instagram, making him the 16th most-followed celebrity on Instagram. With an estimated net worth of INR 1050 crores
and ad revenue of 175 crores, he charges over 14 crores for each individual
post he shares. Kohli has invested around 90 crores, owning 30% stakes in Chisel
Fitness, his own brand. He’s the first Indian sportsperson to sign a 100 crore
rupee contract with sports lifestyle brand Puma, joining the likes of Usain
Bolt, Thierry Henry, and Oliver Giroud.
